MILWAUKEE — Milwaukee police arrested three males after a traffic stop of a stolen car on the city’s south side.

Officers from District Two were on patrol near S. 26th and  W. Legion Street around 7:35 p.m. on February 29th when they saw a 2003 Toyota Camry with no rear registration plates traveling southbound on S. 26th Street.

The driver of the Camry disregarded a stop sign and officers stopped the vehicle in the 2200 block of S. Layton Boulevard. A check of the car revealed it had been stolen earlier in the month from a neighboring jurisdiction.

All three males inside the car were wearing nylon gloves and one of them had a pellet gun. The suspects are a 16-year-old male, a 17-year-old male, and an 18-year-old male, all from Milwaukee.

MPD will present this case to the Milwaukee County District Attorney’s Office in the coming days.

    But the study will reveal why these youngsters keep acting up. As soon as the new arena is built they all will get high paying jobs there and give up their criminal ways.

      And they’ll have no need to steal cars because entitlement programs will give them tickets for free trolley rides to and from work.
